Alloga team member with chilled vaccines

Alloga UK, leading healthcare logistics provider, said it has delivered 24.6 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine till date across England, playing an instrumental role in supporting the NHS.

With the support from colleagues across Alliance Healthcare, its parent firm, Alloga teams have delivered vaccines to approximately 1,490 sites since last December, with deliveries taking place up to seven days a week.

“Our unrivalled experience in vaccine distribution has informed our approach and allowed us to work at pace with NHSE in designing and implementing this very complex supply chain within such a short period of time,” Chris Williams, managing director of Alloga UK, commented.

As part of the programme, Williams led a dedicated team that ensured all necessary processes and preparations were accommodated to distribute vaccines. This involved an area of the Alloga facility being cordoned off and privatised to keep the operation classified. The site was also visited numerous times by Government appointed security agencies to ensure safety and security of the vaccines’ storage.

“This implementation has been far from easy, but our professional teams coupled with a can-do mentality have allowed us to overcome many logistics challenges and implement an excellent solution. The teams across NHSE, Alloga UK and Alliance Healthcare UK should be justifiably proud of their collective achievement,” Williams said.

Alloga said it has achieved 99.5 per cent delivery on time and in full. It currently delivers to 982 live sites.

Julian Mount, managing director of Alliance Healthcare UK, added: “I am so proud that our business and our colleagues are playing such a key part in the lifesaving effort of Covid-19 vaccine distribution. Team members from multiple departments across the business, have all come together to support this national effort. I want to personally thank each and every one who has been involved. It is a fantastic joint endeavour, and it is just one more example of how Alliance Healthcare and Alloga are working together to support the NHS and patients across the UK.”
